Japan Electronic Publishing Association(JEPA) was founded in 1986 by Japanese leading companies in the publishing, printing and computer technologies and softwares trade, aiming at creating a new style of publishing to make it possible to express what we cannot express by usual paper publications. Promoting digitalization of publishing, JEPA has held various kinds of seminars till today, on the advanced technologies such as CD-ROM format in Japanese, CD Interactive(CD-I), Digital Video Disc(DVD), Desktop Publishing(DTP), Internet Publishing, CD-ROM Publishing and so forth, as well as a series of seminars on copyright in multimedia electronic publishing. Also, concerning fonts, the World Font Committee was set up as one of the Special Committees for the Earth and Human Beings and started its activities on researching and studying in 1992. After seven-year trial and error, we can possibly offer this "JEPA World Font CD 1999" at last, to all publishing, printing and computer industries of the world. Today, people came to be able to communicate each other over seas and continents, in a flash, through the internet covered by World Wide Web, which developed and became popular rapidly as a way of international communication, and we feel very proud that we can introduce here the latest technology on the multi-lingual environment of internet browser and fonts, which are both essential for internet communication. At the last but not least, we are deeply grateful to all supports to production of this CD, and we express special thanks for their positive backing up, to: Microsoft Corporation
Microsoft KK (Japan)
Adobe Systems
DynaLab Japan Ltd.
